“There is a romantic idea that myth comes from people. It doesn’t; it comes from the teacher, the shaman and visionary as the giver and interpreter of myth. The visionary translates what he or she sees into an art or ritual form. Myth must be kept alive by artists of one kind or another. The function of the artist is the mythologization of the environment and the world”.

-Joseph Campbell-
